If had the choice between attending 10-11-83 vs 6-27-85, I'm not sure which I would choose, but you are a lucky guy to have been to both shows! 6-27-85 to me is what 10-29-77 is to you. Perhaps it's because I had that show on tape early on but I do believe it's one of the best of the '80's and under appreciated. I think everyone of us here has that 1 show that they love for some strange reason....I can think of a few such as 11-24-79, 6-25-85, 6-14-68, etc..

Billy,

I was at both 83 Garden shows and whole summer 85 run. Believe me when I tell you, you would rather be at the Garden that night!! The crowd responce was greater than the Box breakout, Criptical Breakout, the HCS breakout, the Unbroken Chain breakout, the Richmond Gloria or any other breakout I saw!! Sheer lunacy. Also, the Stephen a few nights later in Hartford got a nice responce but NOTHING like the MSG show.

By the way, I went back and touched the 6-25-85 and 6-27-85 again recently after some postings. At the time I thought they were the cat's meow, now they seem to have lost a little shine for me. I was there and had great times. As far as best SPAC show, the 83 show was truely magnificant. It doesn't get respect it should because there is no known soundboard. I saw all the SPAC shows.

Like you said, some shows just stick with ya. What I've found is that is true as well as some shows stick with you for a while and some shows fall of and them come back to stick with you again later!!

Enjoy them all!!

SPAC '83 is in desperate need of an upgrade. I assume that if it was in the vault we would know by now. Rhino has to have some major upgrade out there, wouldn't you think??? I would love a cleaned up road trips for those 2 MSG shows from '83.
